Sew Perfect

During the summer, Makell decided to sew. She wrote her name in her own handwriting, traced it on muslin, and then stitched away. 14 minutes into the adventure, she realized that it just wasn't possible to sit still long enough to finish her masterpiece. So until now, her needlepoint has sat in a drawer. Today it was revived. What else are you going to do when you have strep throat and can't play with friends? Sew of course. This little lightning bolt girl actually sat still. For an hour. Pure delight.

Nice project! I love it when my kids are sick. They sit still, they are quiet. We try hard never have them wash their hands just so they get sick more often.

Makell, you are amazing. Will you make me one that says Penny? I will put it on my bed, and Bethie needs one and Chloe and Em and Abby and Nate and don't forget Andrew. I think you should also make Paul one to match mine.
